WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Reddish gold with a small light head. Nose of hops. Taste astingently, dryly refeshing. Hops and sweet malt, but less malt backbone than I would have expected. Different from Hop Devil, Different from Stone Ruination. Less pine and orange than the first, less grapefruit than the second, less malt than either. Great dry and bitter finish with sticky hoppy mouthfeel. A really enjoyable pale ale.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Like the dreadnaught but toned down a little. Nice orange/copper color with a slight head and loaded with hops. Very welll balanced with malt.

A very nice pale ale, yet another of the beer payments made to me for painting brock's basement. Lots of hops as would be assumed. Interesting malt flavors involving some fruits of the citrus kind.

Full-bodied (especially for an APA) and hopped...definitely with a purpose. Fruity and dry but not overly so.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 3, 2003
smokey bacon/wood chips aroma with some spicy hops too..chewy mouthfeel with hops fading to maltiness and grapefruits..lots of that "three-floyds" grapefruity flavor that i seem to get from all the three floyd brews..nice pale ale.

This beer pours to a very cloudy orange color and not much head. Upon pouring this into a glass, I notices a lot of various things floating throughout the beer - don't know what that is, but it's a little strange. The aroma holds the scent of fruits. The taste was very strong in character - tasting like some mixture of fruits and hops, with a bitter aftertaste. I prefer others because of the strength of the taste.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2003
Cloudy orange appereance. Wonderful hoppy(!) and fruity (citrus) aroma. Flavour has mild malts and fruits followed by an overwhelming hoppy bitter and acidic (grapes?) finish. It's not normal - and thank God for that!

Good Pale Ale. Has a nice texture and bite to it. There is plenty of hops in this bottle for a citrus flavored ale.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 The GF and I went on a tour of their brewery. For $5 you get a 12oz glass of 3 of their beers. The head was mixed with large and small bubbles. The color was medium amber dark and you could see through it. The beer was the 2nd best of their beers that we sampled. Hotstuff did not try it.
